Colonial Williamsburg: Meetings Here Have Inspired Revolutionary Ideas

For centuries, it has often taken a “meeting of the minds” to inspire, strategize and motivate change. To host a successful meeting, everything must be in synch—the setting, food, entertainment, purpose, and mission. Imagine surrounding yourself with the 18th-century settings that inspired Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Patrick Henry and others as they debated independence. Why should 21st-century corporate gatherings be any different?

Historic Meetings Deserve Historic Settings

Colonial Williamsburg offers a unique collection of hotels, meeting spaces and social events customized to meet your every need. Hotels range from moderate to luxurious, with meeting and event spaces that accommodate from 1,400 persons in general session to an intimate meeting in an elegant board room accommodating 18. The Colonial Williamsburg hotel group identifies with the 18th century, while the hotel facilities deliver on 21st-century expectations.

Accommodations for Every Budget

The Woodlands Hotel & Suites is the moderately priced hotel, with 300 guest rooms and 13,000 square feet of meeting and event space–complete with an outdoor terrace. The Williamsburg Lodge is more upscale with 323 sleeping rooms and 45,000 square feet of event space. The Williamsburg Inn is a boutique, luxury property with 62 guest rooms–and with the adjacent Providence Hall and Guesthouses–a total of 105 sleeping rooms and 9,000 square feet of event space.

Total indoor meeting and event space for all the hotels is 67,000 square feet with an additional 25,000 square feet in beautiful gardens and patios, perfect for receptions and dinners.

Colonial Williamsburg’s award-winning culinary team has developed an extensive, and delicious, array of banquet menu offerings guaranteed to satisfy the most discerning foodie. From southern-inspired buffets, to fresh made smoothie breaks, the staff will work with you to design the perfect menu for your event. Colonial Williamsburg also offers more than 15 restaurants, bars, lounges, and cafés located throughout the hotels and the Revolutionary City, including four historic dining taverns.

Offerings of Spirits and Scholars

When it’s time to wind down, Colonial Williamsburg offers a variety of exciting programs for groups—from ghost walks and behind-the-scene museum tours to scholarly interactions with Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry. Unique after-hours events are often hosted in our contemporary Taste Studio offering exciting cooking demonstrations with our award-winning chefs; and beer, wine and cordials tasting programs such as, “Pints and Pairings,” “Wine, Wit and Wisdom,” and “Sips with Chefs.”

Guests of a Colonial Williamsburg Hotel also have access to endless recreational opportunities, including:

  • 45 holes of golf at the Golden Horseshoe Golf Club
  • The Spa of Colonial Williamsburg, with daily complimentary fitness classes
  • Lawn bowling at the Williamsburg Inn
  • Four pools including one indoor lap pool
